Just a couple more DC posts 😉 My previous posts shared one location or theme per post. The next two will be a bit more of a mix from around the city. Today, I’m sharing a few locations I didn’t spend as much time at from the first two days around DC.
I had quite an extensive list of locations and things I wanted to see, I missed only a couple, but added some in their place. One was this sculpture titled Infinity designed by Jose de Rivera and created by Roy Gussow. This is outside the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, which I spotted on my way to the National Portrait Gallery. Looks like a cherry, right?!

In the base of that sculpture, I liked how the Washington Monument has this dreamy reflection.

Another unexpected find was the Sculpture Garden of the National Portrait Gallery. I somehow missed this entirely in my research, but what a great find! So many well-known sculptors and a great fountain in the center of this garden. I didn’t capture them all, but here are a few.

And that fountain with the dome of the National Gallery of Art at its center.

Now, inside the original National Gallery of Art. The dome and another look-up.

Onto the Hirshhorn Museum. I wasn’t able to go inside and had very little time on the exteriors of this museum because it was closing as I arrived. Still, a couple keepers.

My final stop on day 2, and another location I got kicked out of, the United States Institute of Peace. Would have loved to photograph the interiors but had to settle for a quick tour outside!

See you again soon for the final DC post! If you just can’t wait, here is everything from my time there.
